A video of a fight between Shia LaBeouf and his girlfriend Mia Goth that took place in Germany recently surfaced and the footage was shocking for fans of the Transformers actor. LaBeouf and Goth were filmed arguing on the night of July 24 outside of a taxi cab, and the fight escalated to such a degree that some are wondering whether LaBeouf and Goth have broken up. Representatives for both LaBeouf and Goth did not return Bustle's requests for comment.
During the altercation a seemingly out of it LaBeouf is heard saying, “I don’t wanna touch you. I don’t wanna be aggressive. This is the kind of sh*t that makes a person abusive." He continued to demand, “Can I have my bag please?” and “I just want my bag.” The actor eventually left the scene and was given a ride to the airport from a bystander. While in the car LaBeouf was recorded saying, “If I’d have stayed there, I would have killed her.” During the car trip he attempted to FaceTime with Megan Fox, talked about guns, and promised his driver that he could stay with him whenever he came to Los Angeles.
LaBeouf and Goth have been romantically linked since 2012 after they met on set for Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac. Before dating Goth, he actor was with photographer Karolyn Pho for two years. LaBeouf was similarly photographed having a very public fight and tearful fight with Pho when they were still together. The 29-year-old has also made regular headlines for his erratic behavior including wearing a paper bag over his head to awards ceremonies, creating very personal and strange public art exhibitions, and claiming to be experiencing an "existential crisis."
Goth and LaBeouf were rumored to be engaged earlier this spring when Goth was spotted wearing a large diamond ring on her left ring finger. There has been no official release on the current status of their relationship nor has either of them posted anything on social media regarding their relationship. For all intents and purposes, it appears that they are still together. Goth is in Germany filming a horror movie and LaBeouf is in post-production for two films, Man Down and American Honey, so we should be expecting him on the promotional wagon soon... so long as his behavior doesn't escalate any further.
Whatever the reason behind the fight, LaBeouf's aggressive language was inexcusable. Hopefully, LaBeouf's actions will be examined so something like this doesn't happen again.
